in washington are no more defensible than the path of wasteful and a responsible spending we've been on for decades. working families should come first. everyone agrees a fairer, simpler tax code would get all of us more time. in the attempt to make the tax code simpler, we must continue to demonstrate support for young parents who invest in having kids and raising a family. because after all, they are america's most valued investors. in 1997, republican congress created the child tax credit specifically to help ease the financial burden of families raising children. in 2001, it was expanded. such a policy helps to limit the size of government and results in fewer americans looking to the government for support. now leading up to april 15, families will be besieged by concerns over their taxes. but it's health care and the concern for a healthy family that always worries parents most. most americans have come to expect the best health care in the world, but there's no doubt that our current system is too complex and too costly. president obama's health care law resulted in higher pre

round of defense cuts. this year, about $55 billion will be sequestered in ways that you need to the department. it's not that this is just automatic across-the-board meat cleaver approach. but there was some wiggle room granted to the president and particularly he has chosen personal benefits. so the cuts that have to be made, coming as they will come, about halfway through the budget year will fall disproportionately on the weapons procurement and research , in particular on the maintenance accounts that make trained and ready units for deployment. and because this set of accounts also includes things it means that it will fall on these rapid spending accounts that are most directly associated with making units ready to deploy the combat fields. now, i am sure that the department was intact last week and the chairman said we have a set of managed cuts. we are managing them so that noncritical counts will be protected. well, sometimes there is not much that isn't pretty critical. ammunition and gasoline, for instance, to do training went. paying the contractors who run the ra

. it was federal spending pretty much defense spending. how do you look at that fourth quarter compared to the first half of this year? is the harbinger of things to come or is it going to look like an aberration in their rearview mirror i will start with frank and then move this way. >> was a bit of an aberration and one of the positives i saw in the fourth quarter was the contribution on the housing sector and that is the residential investment. to become. for much of the recovery the housing hasn't been there. housing continues to weaken and be a subtraction for economic activity in 2009, 2010, 2011. finally in 2012 housing began to contribute and takes up in the housing starts and flows through the residential investment and the investment contributed about four tenths of a percentage point in the overall gdp or helped make it less negative. of what we are expecting to see is a bigger role for housing in supporting economic growth in 2013 to the we are expecting that over 2013 housing in the residential investment will contribute close to half a percentage point of overall gdp growt

do to address proposed there is defensiveness on the part of people and institutions that you claim house the implicit bias because you have to point to it and then you have to convince people participating in net but they are perpetuating that to recognize it before something is done, so i'm going to throw this out to the panel. i will start with professor davies and then mr. harris and get to the practical application with our law enforcement sheriff williams. >> it's an important and excellent question because our conception, our traditional conception of how race operates on us and affects our judgments and our decision making is outmoded. we tend to think that we can see racism in the same way that we used to when i was operating under white hoods or whites-only signs of a wall that are explicit and overt. we can't see it that way anymore. the good news is that we have progressed beyond that as a society. we see it occasionally when people slip up, but it's a lot less likely that we are going to see it in that fashion. that means all of our standards and the judiciary are outmo

reaching that point. one is the defense of marriage act, section three about federal benefits the federal government has to get the same preferences and these sorts of things. for people who are lawfully married in their state you are gay. and you can see justice kennedy still may being the deciding vote but completely on federalism grounds. he seems like federalism more and more if you look at is writing the last few years without talking about fundamental rights or equal protection. and another cases california's we're to propagate. i'm not going to go into because my time is limited. i want to talk about other things. but i think the most likely think there is there is a technicality procedure going about standing or movements or who can stand in the seat of to represent your case to the court. that would also be one way to hand victory on i guess federalism grounds in the dome a case while also not enshrine a constitutional right to gay marriage, the court is not ready to do that. moving on to which probably right now, what alex will talk about, the hottest issue and that's gun-contro
